Good morning Junior Class!

If you are considering applying to a 4-year school, then below are a few important things to note.

  1. Please see the Junior College Planning Packet, which contains the following:
    1. Student Brag Sheet – This is for you to fill-out and give to your Counselor so that your Counselor can write you a letter of recommendation.  A good tip is don’t feel confined by the questions, let your Counselor know any and all things that will help you stand-out from your peers so that they can communicate this in your letter of recommendation. 
    2. Teacher Recommendation Questionnaire - This is for you to fill-out and give to your Teacher so that your Teacher can write you a letter of recommendation.  Please note that you should ask only 2 teachers.  Remember you must ask your Teacher to write you a letter of recommendation first, then if they agree to do so you provide them with this questionnaire and finally, then you request the teacher on Naviance as a recommender.
    3. 11th Grade College Planning Timeline Checklist – This just gives you an easy to use check-off list on what you should be doing in order to prepare for the college application process. 
  1. If you are planning on applying to a 4-Year College, then please plan on applying early next year.  You should try and get your college applications completed by October, November or December. This will help you remove the college application stress you will face and will help you ENJOY your SENIOR YEAR! 
  2. The hardest part of a College Application is the College Essay.  Try and complete your College Essay over the summer.  Common Application (www.Commonapp.org) recently released their 2018-19 College Essay Prompts, please see attached.  Please note that the Common Application does not open up their college application for Juniors until August 1st.  If you have any additional questions please see your School Counselor.
